Unusually for one of Mitchell and Kenyon's 'factory gate' films, the girls and young women here seem most fascinated by the camera, stopping and staring while their male counterparts hurry past with little more than a slight smile. The exception is a rather grubby, undernourished young lad, who looks old and wizened before his time, who dashes back and forth to make the most of his screen debut.
